in san francisco. she holds a degree in government, from claire mont college and a policy. >> good evening, everyone, candidates. >> good evening. >> this year we have two candidates for state assembly state 19, michael brior and phil tim. >> they will answer questions that you in the audience submit as well as the questions submitted to the league of women voters. in addition, the viewers from the senior center may submit questions on-line. the time keepers will hold up a yellow card to signify to the candidates that they have 15 seconds remaining and hold up a red card when it is time to stop. >> both have asked the supporters to be respectful of the candidate and the audience and to maintain the quiet during the forum, i also ask you to respect this commitment, please. >> you all have many important decision to make on november 6th, and today's forum will give you the opportunity to ask questions to help you make your decisions. now, let's begin. >> our first question is a very general... actually i want to start with one here that is from the richmond senior center sent in on-l
have done through office and to make government much more receptive and efficient. >> that leads into the question about civic engagement. it is critical that people are engaged to have a safe, strong and vibrant state. what have you done and what will you do to encourage the kind of participation that you are talking about. >> i think that transparency and disclosure are some of the main reasons that we have so little citizen participation, that is one of the reasons that i started up we stand san francisco it is an on-line society to engage citizen and order people to get more involved in government so that we cannot just have a conversation here, where people could make it, if people could be part of that conversation on-line, just like all of the folks at the richmond senior sen center, so they can participate. i think that what is lacking in government at times is really making sur that citizens have the information, and they are digestable information and so few people when they pay property taxes one of the biggest checks they write every year, most people could never des
the report about governance issues, and whatnot, i wanted to clear up some misunderstandings about the comp position and work of the civil grand jury, some of which came out during the last meeting of the government audit and oversight committees. i know the supervisors here probably know how the jury works and what it encompasses so i ask for your indulgence given the fact that those who are watching do not. the california constitution state law requires a grand jury to serve from july 1 to july 30 of the following year. in san francisco the presiding judge of the superior court empanels two grand jury, one that's the indictment grand jury and we the civil grand jury report on matters of concern. the citizen watchdog of county government, the civil authority has authority to investigate and viewt niez the conduct of business of county government as well as the operations of various offices and agencies. the 19 of us, all citizens of san francisco, determine which officers, departments, and agencies the jury will investigate during its one year term of office. so during this year, we were r
and transparency to government and emphasis on education and those are all priorities. and i want to bring to sacramento. i always have been engaged in civic activities and my first campaign was six and senator kennedy. and i worked on al gore i was an intern in his office and volunteered in his campaign and i volunteered in new hampshire for obama and for nusome and lee. i have been on the library commission and i have a public service history in my family. my grandfather used to work for the school board. my dad is on the u.s. supreme court and so i believe that the pinnacle of a person's career is to make an impact on public service and when you see faith in our system of government dropping off a cliff, like it has, going from 80 percent to 20 percent, you see, something is wrong. something is not working. and when you have politics as usual, in sacramento, not being honest, not being transparent, not dealing with the problems and challenges of the future, we say that we have to change that. and so i want to bring that independent perspective, and that personal honesty and that willing
a small business. we have strayed far from the principles of limited government. our government taxes and spends out of control and our civil liberties are constantly under attack. we can fix it, but we need to get government back into its cage. >> our final opening statement is from jeff flake. >> good to be here. two days ago, cheryl and i received a wonderful phone call from my son ryan and forming as we are grandparents. aidan was born into a wonderful family, but he was born into $50,000 of debt. his share of the federal debt we all hold. that is why the stakes in this election are so high. we have to have somebody who understands fiscal discipline. that has been my record in the house of representatives, where i fought my own leadership on issues like earmarks. they punish me for it, but i kept at it and we do not have earmarks any more. that is the kind of attitude i will take to the united states senate. my opponent have a great rÉsume. but a great resume is not a plan. he has been running for a year now and we do not know where he stands on the major issues of the day. we ha
of the separate body governed by a five-member commission appointed by the appo inted by t hemayor with two specific seats for the districts. the primary districts for these areas; important for the board and approved by the mayor that the district included actual residents and stakeholders the successor agency commission. s in terms of the planning commission role, it is an change of the legislation, unchanged pre-dissolution when the board adopted resolution 1112 the creators oversight, that has been peeled off because state law has required it and the state department of finance has required that this oversight body simply just do fiduciary oversight, review and approve the payment schedules and other required functions under state law and a separate body governed by the structure under the city and county of san francisco, the board appointment -- rather the mayor appointments of those five seats goals of the normal board appointment processes all other commissions and boards. the board retains its authority over the redevelopment plans. pursuant to the contracts in place. a pr
governments, really they're overwhelmingly focused on domestic issues. s europeans are dealing with nothing but crisis in europe for the last three years. that's going to continue. that's occupying everything. the americans have an election coming up in four weeks. and there's much less interest in the united states in being the world's policemen or lender of last resort. japanese, you have prime minister every week. i mean, the level of consistency in governments here is just not feasible. and so really that does limit what can be done in any of these four. look, the longer the g-0 persists the more dangerous. so the persistence of the g-0 does lead to the creation of a new system. this is not a new world order. this is in between. precisely because you can't deal with the middle east conflicts in a g-0 world. you're not dealing with climate effectively in the g-0 world. new things will emerge. looking at the nape of the middle east right now, looking at how deep the european crisis is, how unwilling americans are to look outside their borders today, how much transportation is required wit
to directly capitalize the banks. >> the perceived commitment of eurozone governments to mutualize the cost of spanish bank programs have been put into question very much so and should be rejected fairly clearly by core european finance ministers. and we think this is a destabilizing factor in the country's credit outlook. so the question is what pressure that might put on its italian auction today. they're selling up to 6 billion in july btb. we did see t-bills yields edging higher for italy. has already raised, though, 80% of the 465 billion needed to fund the 12012 outstanding debt. but those auction results will be out in just over an hour's or so time. >> even for the impact on spanish bonds, when people look and wonder perhaps why there isn't more impact, it's not just because this move is largely priced in. it's also because the ownership has been transitioning to domestic. so certainly at any time a healthy development itself. >> we also have data coming out, as well, spanish banks borrowing 400 billion euros in the ecb in september. 412 billion euros in august. so that number is st
. but the spanish government complained today that move will only make things worse. >> ( translated ): what everybody needs to have in mind is that political stability is also listed on the stock exchange, and there are a lot of everyday questions for government and citizens that depend on political stability. when some actions or decisions generate political instability, it is much harder to get financing. i am not only talking about financing for public administration, but also for individuals and companies. >> sreenivasan: meanwhile, the government of greece reported unemployment reached a record of more than 25% in july. the rate among young people, 15- to-24 years old, is double that 54%. an outbreak of fungal meningitis in the u.s. has now claimed 14 lives. the centers for disease control reported the latest count today. it said a total of 170 people have been infected across eleven states. the outbreak has been linked to steroid injections for back pain that came from a specialty pharmacy in massachusetts. roughly 14,000 people received the shots. in pakistan, a 14-year-old activist
city government into the business of making home loans. this is part of what brought on the economic crisis at the federal level, fannie mae and freddie mac giving out home loans to people who couldn't afford to buy and later had their houses foreclosed. we don't know what's going to happen in the housing market for the next 30 years. i think it's foolish to set aside increasing set amounts of money for the next 3 decades when we know right now that there's thousands of people living on the streets. why not just build as many affordable units now as possible and do that by getting government out of the way with all its red tape and regulations and taxes and union work rules that increase the cost of housing. that would be a better way to get affordable housing, not bringing back this redevelopment agency with its legacy of driving african americans out of the fillmore and they had slated more than half the bay area for redevelopment before they were shut down. >> anything you'd like to add, peter? >> there's a number of assertions from my opponent that are based in a misunderstand
the job of rewriting the rules of finance. government leaders need to tackle what she calls a legacy of high debt. lagarde says they should focus on getting people, particularly young people, back to work, and they should address the imbalances between rich and poor. she says financial leaders need to lift a veil of uncertainty. >>> one of lagarde's deputies says everyone at the imf world bank meetings is focused on uncertainty. our ron madison talked with joo ming to find out what he hopes will come out of this conference. >> which hold the most threat do you think of potentially derailing a fragile economy? >> the current risk number one is still the european crisis. if the crisis intensifies, it can cause skwit a bit of damage for the whole world. we did a study to see if one extreme case, for example, if things go, it could cause roughly 6% of gdp impact itself and roughly 6% for uk collective gdp impact, rough ly 2% for u.s and 2% for japan and china and the rest of the world. so, this is a pretty serious situation. >> we're seeing a slowdown now in china just ahead of the chang
government. our government taxes and spends out of control and our civil liberties are constantly under attack. we can fix it, but we need to get government back into its cagae. >> our final opening statement is from jeff flake. >> good to be here. two days ago, cheryl and i received a wonderful phone call from my son syan and forming as we are grandparents. aidan was born into a wonderful family, but he was born into $50,000 of debt. his share of the federal debt we all hold. that is why the stakes in this election are so high. we have to have somebody who understands fiscal discipline. that has been my record in the house of representatives, where i fought my own leadership on issues like earmarks. they punish me for it, but i kept at it and we do not have earmarks any more. that is the kind of attitude i will take to the united states senate. my opponent have a great rÉsume a. but a great resonate is not a plan. he has been running for a year now and we do not know where he stands on the major issues of the day. we have a choice in this election. we can elect somebody who does not h
are approached or anything happens in your professional lives with the united states government that you have any questions about, please come to this committee. we take the work of whistle- blowers and people who give testimony very seriously. you have been critical to bring out things which would not have -- which would not have come out to. i will close with two comments. that i took away from today. he did not produce security at -- you do not reduce security at the -- the same time as you are increasing hazardous duty pay. it does not make sense. i have not heard that question asked and answered. i only heard that it occurred. i think the state department to take away from today and understanding that that sends a message that says, we will pay you for the risk. we will not pay to have you made safer. that is the impression that anyone would get if you reduce the staffing below recommendations or request an increase the pay. i do not think the men and women who service overseas want. i know the compensation for hardship is important, but safety comes first. i have the marine fellow who work
with the afghan government, which will keep american soldiers in afghanistan until 2024. do you have a sense of what the minimum number of soldiers should be going forward? >> let me clarify a couple of things. there are more than a few former administration folks here who will say that was not the total point man on afghanistan. i was involved, but share the credit with many, many others who probably had more input than i did. the first point i'd like to make about afghanistan and the big difference between a strong and mr. obama is that mr. obama set a deadline, creed, full stop. i was in kabul december 2009 when mr. obama made that speech. and i was talking to isaf people, the people from international force, you know, people who are out there getting shot at from other countries, not just our own. to a man and a woman, there were a lot of women there, they all, almost took no notice of the surge statement. what they noticed was the deadline. what our pakistani friends have noticed is the deadline. what the taliban has noted is the deadline. and everybody is playing to that deadline. incl
-- which is necessary for it to be involved in the global economy-- but also, since the government of laos doesn't have the resources necessarily to develop large-scale hydropower electric dams, the... it's being increasingly carried out by private corporations. narrator: this private development is carried out through something called a "boot scheme," which stands for build-operate-own-transfer. fox: a private corporation will build, operate, own a hydroelectric dam for a specified number of years, and then at the end of that time when they've recouped an agreed-upon profit, they hand it back to... hand it back over to the lao government. narrator: it's hoped that further hydroelectric development will provide the money needed to lift laotian living standards. the government wants to reduce poverty from 40% to ten percent by the year 2010. but it is dauntingask. the lao economy remains largely agricuural. b80% of the population is rural. only limited industry, such as cotton or silk, has begun in vientiane. literacy rates are among the world's lowest.silk, health care is another area of c
r the indonesian government. woma well, it's s, of course, a country that's in so many thousands of islands over such a large area, it's hard to integte that into one economy. until there was a satellite inrbit over innesia, for example, unall the peop ithe country couldn't hear the presidenofheir count at the same me there's s and communication until then. it's parof why they have preserved their diversity, because there's different kinds on the different islands and the different regionalizations, and while they maintai it was very muchasier practice t unity in diversity that's their national motto, because ey were maintai it was very muchasier practicespatially apartersity antheyere in different territories and they didn't colictith each other in everyday life. naator: but e government hasnsored a lan out of the major population centers to less developed areas. the one thing at has happened with the migraon and the change is that miio opeop out ofava, out omadurae occupy and cnge e inorest ap intoinilalmve landr expo-- and ingricultu-- theyave moved muslims om sulawesinto t
and global slowdown. lagarde says government can do more harm than good by cutting too far too fast. >> struggling eurozone countries should be granted more time to fix their fiscal problems according to the international monetary fund chief, christine lagarde. she said with many countries introducing drastic austerity programs at the same time, it is important to slow budget cuts, particularly in greece. >> i have said repeatedly that an additional two years was necessary for the country to actually face the fiscal consolidation program that is considered. >> the german finance minister is also in tokyo. he repeated his position that greece must stick to the cost- saving measures and timetables agreed with its international lenders. >> i think it is better for each country to try to solve its own problems and keep promises already made. if they cannot keep those promises, they must expect to be criticized for it. >> it is still not certain whether greece will qualify for its next installment of bailout funds. without the 31.5 billion euros in loans, they could be forced out of the
responding to what appear to be stray syrian shells. turkey's government has put its military on a high state of readiness. russia wants an explanation from turkey about last night's event, and syria has described the incident has an act of piracy. the cargo had been legit moot and accused the turkish authorities of using aggression against the crew before they were able to leave. >> james reynolds is in the turkish city near the syrian border. let's pick up, james, on what peter was talking about right at the end there. obviously the syrians contesting what was in this cargo. to be honest we only have the turkish authority's word for that it's imlegal? >> yeah, george, the interesting thing is is this, none of the public has seen the cargo. turkey hadn't put it on display. we have the word of the turk yirk prime minister that the cargo was objectionable. some have tried to fill in the blanks there. one newspaper says 10 containers were confiscated. but the director of syrian arab airlines, the airline that had to stop says that all the cargo was legal, and he wants it back. >> and james, now
and there is an executive committee that deals with governance. i think with the new head of the commission and certainly all of us in this room paying more attention to the work that the staff is doing and the commission's doing, i think we can using existing framework to make progress. so with that i just want to reaffirm the mayor's strong commitment to the importance of art, and this department, art is such a rich part of our city and, you know, we are -- it's hard to hear negative things about work that we're doing. but i do think that we are on the right track. so i'm happy to hand the mic over to tom delaney now from the arts commission. thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisors. thank you for your time. and thank you. i just want to start by thanking the civil grand jury. i started in my role as director of cultural affairs on january 9 of this year and one of the things that came first light to me was there his there was an investigation by the civil grand yir and that caused alarm on my behalf about what i was getting into. but i think it was important for me as to note that we live in a city w
is rising distrust of the government. today, the numbers in our government labored upon the report created suspicion, uncertainty, and a new dimension of mistrust. weekly jobless claims came in with low expectations the president once again asserting that the tax code is designed. in other words from the man was shot in the head and neck if he commuted to work in yemen. we will have the latest developments tonight. the latest in a series of incredible statements by stephanie cutter. touching on the tragedy in benghazi. carter's rationale for why the murder of our ambassador and three other americans has become the subject. >> in terms of the politicization of this, we are in the debate. but the entire reason, it is because of mitt romney and paul ryan. it is reckless and irresponsible lou: politics, terrorism, the economy, we cover it all with a host of experts and inside analysts. republican national committee chairman reince priebus joins us, white house chief of staff, john sununu joins me and political insiders, chris stirewalt, taking a look at the polls and analyzing the importance o
companies, three governments, and that is incredibly difficult to do. the euro crisis has not helped, and in the end, you have to say investors in this company have not been convinced of the logic of this deal. you can see that from the fact that the eas share price has risen sharply on the news of the collapse of these talks. >> the international monetary fund has called on europe's leaders to do more to tackle the eurozone debt crisis. at the imf's annual meeting, leaders said the flow of money out of searching countries was particularly country. the imf chief also urged greece to take more concrete and urgent action to cut its spending. >> let's turn to the markets now and take a quick peek at some numbers. the dax ended the day almost 0.5% down. euro stoxx 50 closed 2% down. the dow jones currently going down 1%. the euro is trading at $1.2897. >> in germany after months of intense public debate, the government has unveiled new legislation aimed at regulating circumcision of young boys. >> it is to overturn a regional court ruling in may that circumcision amounted to grievously b
ahead and respond first and then answer the question, what is the worst thing the federal government can do? boswell: tom talks a lot about it and certainty but a lot happens to create that uncertainty and we need to stop those things and get something done. we need and farm bill and energy credit. yes i think we ought to be clear. gives supported the lose tax breaks and i did not because you know, it seems to me like we have been involved in these long, long wars going on and i can imagine what the soldiers feel like. i know what i would feel like coming back from vietnam. now we have to pay for it. that would not be a very good thing and i think that's very bad. >> moderator: how do you respond to that? latham: in the house of representatives we have passed an extension of the current tax loss and i think it's interesting commerce and boswell says that he opposed the bush taxes and he just voted for a budget that extended the bush tax cuts. but, excuse me, please. boswell: the tax is obviously, we need to extend those. you know we have this sequestration which causes rescission and spe
specifically to bring the governments instead of gridlock to the nation's capital? and i think we split ahead of time, and the first response, final response will go to congresswoman sutton. sutton: thanks very much for the question. i think building those relationships is important but it's also not just about reduce it down with, it's who you stand up for. this race is not just about who is free to be the representative from the 16th district it's going to be who is going to be represented in the 15th defeat the 16th district to read my life is standing up for the middle class and those that aspire to it. i stood up to special-interest and politicians who violated the public trust whether democrats or republicans and to protect medicare and social security earnings that endorsement of the committee for social security and medicare. i stood up for the troops and veterans while i reached across the aisle to pass legislation in the stop-loss protection and other things as well because i know that people deserve a government plot on the back but definitely deserve a government on their side and
does now. if you think about liberia it was the women coming together and it was without government sank and without our own encouragement. so it needs to be a true component in our foreign policy. we need to see this as fundamental and act is if it's fundamental. and of course in afghanistan, you know, i mean thanks to the feminist majority that was concern about the women in afghanistan but i can tell you the administration was saying it's their culture. i think maybe what happens to women is culture, what happens to men is politics. you can't change that. and we now have the very deep and important problem of how we leave and what happens. [applause]. >> i invite any of our members of the press and the feminist media who have joined us today to also jump in. it's a question now about girls and young women who want to make a difference for women's rights and in feminism, do you have advice for them? >> my advice is don't listen to me. really, listen to yourself. that's the whole idea. we're here to support you and learn from you. no relationship is unequal including between young
at the with the government is sitting on these jobs figures because we have the cut from the payroll's added number and this morning the initial jobless claims down from 30,000 because the state didn't report. and the forward revision is week after week and month after month. >> there has to be some sort of uniformity. lori: welcome to rockets -- lori rothman. melissa: the group's newest target and why these attacks can't be stopped. we know they're coming. >> we try to get answers for you in the meantime. will they dropped the glove? the first and only vice-presidential debate. we have some stock plays you might want to consider before the candidates took the stage. lori: j.c. penney trying to reinvent its doors. melissa: it is that risky bet but they're taking part. we will last gig will's ceo when she joins coming up in this hour. lori: i hadn't even heard of big. learned about -- business strategy. and an update on the markets. and 30,000 less than expected. we never see an improvement like that. that is the lowest level in four years but there is one big times. one major state did not repeat i
, kentucky, east of here tomorrow. this is a fundamental discussion about the role of government. mitt romney in that debate the other week used the phrase "trickle-down government," which is a very clever and very condescending formulation of what government is. the government programs that we have, that include social security and medicare and medicaid and education and so forth come from the ground up. they're what people want, they're what people need, they're what people voted for. they're part of the fabric of american life. they're not trickle-down anything. and what the president has to do and what joe biden has to do tomorrow night is to confront that notion. joe biden has to not only defend the president and attack paul ryan for his libertarian ideas, joe biden has to defend social security and medicare and the very idea of the usefulness and the importance of government in sharing responsibility in america, a big, heavy lift for joe biden tomorrow night. >> it's a heavy lift, howard, i agree, but it's also right in his wheelhouse. everyone in this country knows his middle class bac
subsidies to >> so there is no government-run health care? >> yes, there is government-run health care. the president could not deal with it in his own debate. he has no idea what his bureaucrats will do. these are not doctors. >> four hours away until the 2012 vice-presidential debate. it will happen here inside the norton center for the arts in danville, ky. they were the smallest institution ever to host a televised general election debate. it starts at 9:00 this evening. our preview coverage starts as 7:00. an hour-and-a-half debate. we will open up our phone lines. we will read your tweets and e- mail's. our cameras have been covering all the other activity going on at centre college. all of that is under way. here is a live look, here on c- span.

through the federal government is something that needs to be reformed. >> thank you. >> ending with the theme of public safety, our final question, is that the state proposition 36 seeks to amend california law to provide that a life sentence should not be imposed for a third felony conviction unless it is for a serious or violent felony, and what is your position. >> i spent a lot of time my ten years in legislation working on criminal justice reform to make sure that we have saner drug laws and we don't see the spending grow from 5.2 to over ten percent surpassing the amount that we spend on higher education as a completely wrong track that we are on. thanks to corn brown we have turned the corner and with realignment we will be reducing that percentage of funding on the criminal justice so that we can spend it on education which is the best crime preventive tool known to human kind. i am a strong supporter of prop 36 and i supported the earlier version in 2004 when only because of wise that arnold schwarzenegger said in a television commercial that it was mathematically impo
and attention that a stronger, more broadly based governing body can provide them. and it doesn't take much to make that happen we believe, and we'll talk more about that in a minute. we do believe that more community leaders are necessary in the commission to raise its stature in the community and if it does that it will find that raising funds from outside of the government will be more available, that getting support from outside of the government will be more readily available, and its interesting to note that these comments are reenforced by other -- by some of the people -- well, they will be reenforced by a past commissioner who serves with great esteem in the cultural arts affairs, and i hope you have an opportunity to read that as part of the responses. i'm not allowed to mention names, otherwise i would. so in summary for this portion, or this particular focus on governance, we believe that the work of the arts commission is too important to remain static, that it is living under a charter requirement that limits its potential to be a much more significant organization in the city
're better off than four years ago. we have to get government spending under control before it's too late but this election is about more than the economy. it's about our freedom. you saw what they tried to do with the catholic church. they tried to cram the birth cell mandate down their throats. 159 new government programs. so many bureaucrats making decisions about your lives. yes, folks, it's a tax. in fact, it's 21 new taxes at last count. i believe we have to get government out of the way so business can create jobs. i have a plan to show you how i can do it. thank you very much for your time. we built this country. now let's get pack to work, all of us. i'd like to work for you in washington but i'd lack you to get out and vote in november. >> $16 trillion debt, housing market stagnant at best. where do you start? >> we can go back to the 2008 budget. people forget that barack obama in the past three and a half years and my opponent in congress have increased the size of government by 20%. i don't see any benefit. i think we have it go back it that 2008 baseline and within four or f

is to use the phrase that mitt romney use the in the debate last week, trickle down government. they're trying to discredit something they called trickle down government. it's up to joe biden tonight to begin to rebuild and to remind people that government is a cooperative exercise. people voted for social security, they voted for medicare, they voted for the people who built the modern state that we have. that's a big technical order and i think biden will be up to it. ryan has a much easier task in many ways. he can stand there and point to every negative economic statistic that's still out there, and there are plenty of them, and just repeat them over and over and over again. he's got a much easier strategic menu than joe biden does. biden's got to do a million things at once which is, frankly, not very easy. >> howard once back in the '80s robert downey jr. was on "saturday night live" doing a sketch playing a movie critic, i'll never forget, i saw this movie, it changed my life. i saw it again and it changed it back. if this race is kind of like that to where the whole movie, th
. europe is a mild recession. you could argue not worse, but the government has spent 50% of the money. in asia is slower but nothing mystical or different than the newspapers. the united states is fundamentally stronger than people think much of the reasons for that a little bit later. in latin america, you know, some groups are slower, but obviously a slowdown quite a bit. >> in a show you seem sanguine about peer what about india slowing, china slowing, china slowing, china slowing and they're going they're going to need to check its good remember is to be a lot higher. they need the 7% or 8% to avoid the social unrest and to build the infrastructure. i think they're going to need that. they're going to change the leadership to be smooth and will continue former policies of the government, but they have the wherewithal. so they've got $3 trillion in reserves and capability to maintain. they move very quickly. so the stimulus package after the crisis they think was like seven months after the crisis, they did in fact, literally. so they know what they want to accomplish. i don't beli
much the federal government trimmed from child health services last year, as fiscal stimulus programs were phased out. in fact, despite election talk about saving young generations from the federal debt, government has been neglecting children more and more. state and municipal spending for them has fallen every year according to the urban constitution. plus outlays for children are projected to drop from 10% to 8%. we have the third worst infant mortality and the second highest teen-age pregnancy rate. we're also in the bottom quarter for literacy. we're under funding our future. >>now that's politically direct. >> eliot: september, 2012, an attack on u.s. consulate in libya killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. after the attack, the administration claimed the attack was a protest over an offensive youtube video gone bad. >> this is an response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the arab and muslim world. >> eliot: almost immediately that story ban to crumble, and it changed day by day and it was confirmed there was never any
.s. government to get updates, to make sure the families are kept apprised. but you also expect and every department has this. if it's an employee lost, or a member of one of our law enforcement or intelligence service, that agency takes ownership of making sure to shepherd the person through the system and around the system. in many respects, it's sort of incomprehensible to me. these are people -- the family members were identified. they met with senior officials, and it is not as though they don't know where she is. >> initially i thought maybe they were in contact with sean smith's wife, who, i guess, is in the netherlands. but she was at this reception. they clearly talked to her. >> that's right. in fact, often times with a family that's lost someone, there's more than one person. so you'll have the parents of the victim, you may have a spouse, extended family. and it becomes the government' s responsibility to care for that family and keep the family informed. >> jill, you reached out to the state department this evening about what pat is saying what are they saying? >> they are sa
, federal reserve, printed money and bought bonds from government as if there was really an action and a buyer. neil: that is the world's greatest gambler calling washington's bluff, not with a poker face, but with a rid face, mad as hell and he ain't gonna take it any more face. this is a story of how in so doing, steve wynn might have just offended this presidential race, and unfortunately, it is the president who could be coming up snake eyes. so was it a gamble for wynn to say ha he said? former office depot ceo insists it would have been a bigger gamble if he did not. that was my react, this is taking on a youtube sensation like of its own. -- life of its own, justifiably so? >> well, i think steve wynn is right, he has been a job creator and a terrific job would the government, a lot of people, a lot of small businesses have created jobs, and gambled with their own money if you will, without the government, yet have you government going out continuously saying we'll create more government jobs, you know the be people are bad people are fat cats we need to tax them more and so

of a vacuum because the libyan government does not have the capacity to inject itself and enforce the laws? >> in fact, that's part of the analysis that came forward in the hearing today. it's unclear that if you put more security personnel inside the compound you could have repelled this attack because outside of the fence that responsibility of security rests with the host government, in this case libya understanding that this government, new as it is is challenged, and it does not have the capacity that you would expect in a developed country, for example. i think that came forward today that even with more personnel you can probably construct a credible scenario that fewer people might have been killed. you could construct a credible scenario that fact more people would have been killed if there were more significant confrontation with this armed element that did, in fact, penetrate consulate perimeter. >> eliot: p.j. crowley, former assistant secretary of state for public affairs for president obama. thank you for joining us. >> thank you eliotototototototototototototototototototototo
